In captivity, elephant mothers often reject their newborn calf, but in the wild they are surrounded by an intricate herd with mothers who have gone before them and show them how to care for the next generation.
Young gorillas learn by mimicking the behaviors of other individuals in the troop, and by play fighting with other youngsters. A young gorilla stays close to its mother until it is 4 to 6 years old. Gorillas are known to nurse for up to 3 years.
